Champion of the melodic house genre, Cedric Steinmyller – best known as Klingande – has been breathing new life into the electronic music world with his impeccable productions and uplifting sound, cementing his reputation as one of the most refreshing and original producers around today.
A welcome departure from the big room house sound that has been dominating the scene of late, Klingande’s sublime melodies have earned him recognition from industry heavyweights Kygo, Bakermat, Robin Schulz and Klangkarussel to name just a few.
A musician in the truest sense of the word, what sets Klingande apart from the rest is his dedication to producing unusual and mesmerizing soundscapes. Constantly introducing instruments not usually encountered in typical electronic music, his third official single ‘RIVA (Restart The Game)’ – released earlier in 2015 and featuring French singer Broken Back – even saw him experiment with the harmonica to almighty applause. Bringing his saxophone player to every show he plays, Klingande ensures this experimental attitude resonates throughout his live performances and it is therefore no surprise that he has been called upon to play at major festivals, from Ultra Music Festival in Miami to Tomorrowland and TomorrowWorld.
Looking ahead to the end of 2015 and beyond, it’s clear that Klingande has no intention of putting on the brakes. With the promise of an upcoming album, as well as a live tour in the works for 2016 that will see him bringing out musicians playing the guitar, violin, harmonica, drums, saxophone and even singers, Klingande is undoubtedly the one to watch.
